Each year, the High Plains Regional Climate Center assembles climate summaries that provide an overview of conditions on monthly, quarterly, and annual time scales. Each monthly climate summary is released on the 5th business day of the following month, each quarterly climate summary is released on or around the 3rd Thursday of the following quarter, and each annual climate summary is released on the 5th business day of the following year. See below to read current and archived climate summaries.
Climate products and tools are developed by the High Plains Regional Climate Center (HPRCC) and its partner Regional Climate Centers to provide users with a means to routinely access recent weather and climate data. While applied research has demonstrated that the use of such data in decision making can reduce risk and lower a user's cost, near-real-time data are preliminary in nature and sometimes contain errors. Although care is taken to remove known errors, it is possible that some data will change after receipt of written records and final quality control steps. Users are therefore warned to consider any negative impact that errant data might have on their business and use preliminary data and information at their own risk.
The user assumes the entire risk related to the use of information on HPRCC webpages. HPRCC provides such information "as is,", and in no event will HPRCC be liable to a user or to any third party for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special or exemplary damages or lost profit resulting from any use or misuse of information provided through HPRCC.
